2019 marks the first Pettinice Cake Show and Competition hosted by NZ Bakels Pettinice. During the weekend, attendees view works of sugar art, learn new techniques in the mini-classes, watch on-site live decorating competitions and demonstrations and of course, enjoy shopping from our vendors.
This year's theme is: Cake Art. The cake competition is open to everyone and all the details can be found on our website. Competitors will need to translate art pieces into a form of cake and sugar art, taking inspiration from paintings or sculptures. Does Art Nouveau move you? Perhaps you prefer Surrealism. The choice is yours! A postcard sized photo of your art piece inspiration is to be displayed alongside your competition entry. We have over $7k in prizes!
There will be two demonstration stages, featuring cake artists and patisserie chefs who will share a multitude of decorating techniques throughout the weekend.
Instructors are offering a variety of classes from edible painting to chocolate work and more. Beginning or advanced students interested in learning techniques through a variety of mini classes are available throughout the Cake Show weekend. Class space is limited, so be sure to sign up quick.
